McCormack delighted with Scotland’s top ten rise

Scotland coach Steve McCormack believes that the Bravehearts’ rise into the top ten of the RLIF world rankings is testament to a great team spirit and work ethic.

The Scots are now ranked eighth in the world, with their European Championship victories ensuring that they rose above Wales, Papua New Guinea and the USA.

They are now one place behind Ireland, who are seventh. France remain in fifth place, and England are in third.

“This is reward for several years of hard work,” said McCormack.

“It’s not just the wins this year, it’s the World Cup wins over Tonga and the USA, and the draw with Italy.

“They were built on the back of some real graft and commitment from a lot of players and staff since the 2008 World Cup to make those achievable.”
